Credit where it’s due

In which things go back to money


Thanks for all the comments on financial equality within relationships. Using the term “sexual equality” was a bit of a red herring, really,* because it wasn’t really anything to do with gender at all, other than that I wanted to find out who would automatically assume that it was all about a man who didn’t want his female partner to have any control over their finances.

And the answer is: it is all good, and there is nothing wrong with what they are doing. P is (so far as I can tell, because I’ve never met R) the more sensible and level-headed of the two. R accepts (I’m told) that he is incapable of looking after money, so lets P get on with it. Moreover, R is unable to get any sort of credit card. Why is a mystery, because he has a mortgage and a clean credit record so far as he can tell; but the fact is, I’m told, that he’s always been turned down. So P is in charge of everything.

It’s all good. What’s more interesting, though, is why we** thought it might not have been. A bare statement of facts never tells the whole story.

* or “mistake”, you could say.

** or, “you, the readers,” rather
